This chapter examines the United Nations' (UN) reform activities during the 1990s to enhance coordination and good governance. The reform process undertaken by UN Secretary General Boutros Boutros-Ghali during the early part of the 1990s was overtaken by the quiet revolution to change the UN internal administrative and other structures announced by his successor Kofi Annan in 1997. Under Annan's term, the reform process required two types of action, either requiring approval by UN members or falling within the competence of the Secretary-General as the chief executive organization of the organization.
